# of nights in hospital?



Recommended Posts

1 night. Surgery at 230p and out the next evening at 530p.

Could've stayed another night. Felt crappy but thought it better to be crappy at home.

I was told to expect 3 nights. I had surgery 12/30/13 in the early a.m. I woke up with lots of sharp chest pains which radiated to my heart. They started running heart test xs 3 to check my enzymes n make sure no heart attack. Day 2 same issue, very badly, they diagnosed it as esophageal spasms. I was told I also had a hernia repaired. Day 2 n 3 I was taken down for leak test, too painful to swallow (spasms) too swollen for liq to pass threw, nvr really " passed" the test, so doc made me npo and I ended up stayn a week n a day. They finally let me drink Friday n since I cud tol liq pain free, they decided to let me go today, Praise God. So far so good, just can't get comfy. Gla.

I was in 4 nights. I was a revision from band to sleeve and I had a lot of complications. the surgery itself took over 4 hours due to scar tissue (from the lap band and from a previous spleenectomy). After surgery I couldn't keep anything down because the swelling in my stomach and esophagus was so severe nothing was passing through. I also developed pneumonia and m y left lung collapsed. They also thought I had a blood clot (which I did not). So I had a lot of complications and still was only in 4 days.

Okay, I must be abnormal. I didn't stay the night. I was scheduled for surgery at 10:45 but started close to 2. I was ready to go by 7:30. The doctor was hesitant to let me go but I was out by 9pm. Anyone else not stay the night?

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
